COVID-19 hit the United States seemingly overnight, and no sector of American society was left untouched. For medical schools, telehealth training and remote learning became major parts of the curriculum. Students have had to content with canceled classes, missed rotations, and revised training timelines, even as the demand for new doctors grows ever more pressing.

This article from Medscape outlines how institutions have been forced to rethink how to train students, especially those students who may go on to practice in rural areas and expected to have a wide base of training.

With limited hands-on access to patients, students must learn in ways most never have before. Medical schools are now test-driving a mix of new and re-imagined teaching strategies that aim to produce doctors who will enter medicine just as prepared as their more seasoned peers.
